Ingredients

  • 1 prepared whole wheat pizza dough/crust
  • 4 slices bacon
  • 8 oz. brussels sprouts washed, trimmed, and halved or quartered
  • 8 oz. mozzarella cheese shredded
  • salt and pepper
  • olive oil

Instructions

  • Let pizza dough come to room temperature.
  • Place cast iron pizza pan (or baking stone/sheet) in oven and preheat to 500 degrees F.
  • In a cast iron or other heavy skillet, cook bacon over medium high heat until crispy. Remove and place on paper towels to drain. Chop roughly when cooled.
  • Add brussels sprouts and salt and pepper to the skillet (in the bacon grease) and cook over medium-high heat until seared and tender (about 5-7 minutes).
  • Meanwhile, roll out pizza dough and place on a floured pizza paddle. Drizzle top of crust with olive oil. Remove pizza pan or stone from the oven and place the crust (carefully!) on top.
  • Mix together 1/2 of the mozzarella, chopped bacon, and cooked brussels sprouts in a small bowl. Spread on top of crust. Top with remaining mozzarella.
  • Place pizza back in oven and cook for another 7-10 minutes, or until cheese is melted and beginning to brown.
  • Slice and serve!
